Stephen Lieber—Seismic Activity on the Moon, and the Implications for Construction Projects

The moon is more seismically active than California. These quakes last much longer than those on earth. Engineers designing lunar habitations must understand seismic this activity thoroughly. This talk will discuss how active the moon is, different types of quakes, and the effects for future lunar exploration.
